The new iPad and the Marketer. Sounds like the name of a modern fairytale but don’t expect a Cinderella story. The new iPad is faster, sharper and slightly more functional than its older sibling, but it’s not a huge breakthrough for marketers. What it is, is proof that tablets are going mainstream and can’t be ignored in your marketing plan.
The new iPad (they’re not calling it the iPad 3 for some reason) has a screen resolution that is unprecedented. CNET says it’s like watching HD TV for the first time. It not only tops all other tablets, but it even makes high-quality computer monitors look bad.
Apple has also upgraded the processing speed, which was already fast. I imagine the new iPad will anticipate what you want and deliver it before you can ask – seriously, that’s the only way I can see it being any faster.
